You do not need a passport or a visa to travel to this America

Even though the local people here talk about Trump and Hillary, they have not voted for either of them. Welcome to America, which is not far away at all. This America is a small landmark in Amichakiri, Champakulam, Alappuzha. 

So, you may ask, how did this name come to be? Long ago, there was a toddy shop here. And  a person who had the brew here made a casual comment that the beverage resembled the drinks available in America. And since, the area is known as America Junction. 

Get into a KSRTC boat, tell them you want to get down in America, and this is where they will drop you. 

The locals are very proud that their hometown is known as America. About half a kilometer away is another place called New York. You can have nice toddy from the toddy shops here, have the amazing food and then claim that you have gone all the way to America, without a passport and a visa!
